For the past six years Zane Hodge has swum the Chicot Challenge each June to raise awareness of diabetes and funds for the Diabetes Foundation of Mississippi. This year, however, due to injuries, he was not be able to swim.
However, since they believed “the cause was too important to let die,” Zane’s friends, including Wilson Carroll, Spence, and MJ Staples, volunteered to take on the Challenge and swam a one-way relay from the Lake Chicot State Park to Ditch Bayou. Chicot Challenge T-shirts have been printed. Follow Zane’s adventures at href=”http://endangeredswimmer.blogspot.com/”>http://endangeredswimmer.blogspot.com/
